The American Red Cross and EMA are in Tipp City today helping residents whose homes were damaged by severe weather that moved through early Friday morning.
All of Tipp City schools were on a two-hour delay as crews worked to restore power. Two people were injured when a tree fell on a house on Arapaho Drive.
Shortly before 3 a.m. Tipp City crews were called to multiple reports of trees on homes in the city, said Cameron Haller, Tipp City Fire Chief.
Emergency crews responded to residences on Rohrer Drive, Arapaho Trail, and Kiowa Court for trees either on top of or into the homes.
On Arapaho Trail, a tree fell into a home and struck two occupants inside. They were taken to a local hospital with “mild to moderate” injuries, Haller said.
Garber Drive was blocked after a tree fell across the roadways. Crews removed the tree from the road a short time later.
The storm has also caused severe flooding in the northern Miami County. At 7:45 a.m., a water rescue was underway on State Route 274 in Shelby County.
There are dozens of roads closed in Logan, Champaign, Mercer ad Auglaize counties, and the storm dropped large hail early Friday morning.
